Bridge the IT/OT Gap

Whether the convergence of IT and OT systems was accidental or as a planned initiative, the risk is real. How can you protect your organization from the elimination of airgapped environments?

Armis Protects Both IT and OT Environments Against Lateral Movement Attacks

IT/OT Convergence Challenges

The convergence of IT and OT environments has rendered traditional security measures ineffective in the protection of complex, expanding attack surfaces.

Traditional Security Methods Can’t Secure Converged IT/OT Environments

OT devices communicate with other devices, existing systems, or networks. But traditional security tools cannot protect them against attacks that start on the IT side of the house and then laterally migrate to OT.

Protect your entire operation against the lateral creep of an attack that can directly impact your organization.

Convergence of Technologies Coupled With a Convergence of Responsibilities

IT security have typically built operations with a “security first” mentality which demands fully technology updates and changeouts every 3-5 years.

OT environments, on the other hand, have traditionally been sequestered and airgapped; making the key goal one of reliability and uptime. Technology changeouts may be every decade or two.

With the convergence of these two vastly different approaches to a single team, security and resiliency of operations are both paramount and must function at scale.

Prioritizing Mitigation Vs Remediation

OT environments require constant uptime making maintenance windows for remediation, and patching few and far between.

CISOs and security teams must prioritize attack mitigation techniques to compensate for the inability to regularly remediate vulnerabilities and perform system upgrades in OT environments.

Once a maintenance window is available these same teams must have a prioritized list of systems to remediate that is based on risk and asset criticality to the business.

Intelligent Network Segmentation

Using network segmentation visualizations to manage your IT/OT attack surface dramatically improves your cyber and operational resilience. With Armis Centrix™, you can display connections based on segments, asset types and defined boundaries.

With network segmentation you can identify device types that are not conforming to defined segmentation policies and risk assessment controls to generate ACLs to enable the correct segmentation of the device using existing NAC tools. Automatically push contextual information regarding your OT and IT environments to integrated segmentation technologies to streamline the management of such traditionally complex solutions.

Map Your Converged IT/OT Environment to Compliance Standards and Security Frameworks

Converged IT/OT environments must comply with key regulatory and security standards including NERC, MITRE ATT&CK, ISA/IEC 62443, ISO 27001, NIST SP 800-82 Rev. 2 and more.

Proper planning, cybersecurity strategies, and collaboration between IT and OT teams are crucial to successfully reap the benefits of this integration while mitigating potential drawbacks.

With Armis Centrix™, customizable dashlets map to evidence requirements outlined in security frameworks, customizable reports enable cross team collaboration and board-level reporting. Role-based access enables teams to focus only on the devices in their scope of responsibility. Let us show you how.
